My daughter has started to use a night light.
She's fascinated with flashlights and since she was little but never used a nightlight per say.
We've use a headlight to read during cuddle time.
We have had this lantern by her bed for nighttime potting since she was 2.
Well, now it's now her nightlight. She leaves it on, closes her door now. I check on her every 10-15 minutes and when she falls asleep, I turn the flashlight off.
I have to leave it on her bed though. In the middle of the night, she will turn it on and make her way to the bathroom.
She no longer has the entourage of 100 stuffed animals on her bed. She now just has her nightlight, mommy giraffe and daddy giraffe. Brother and sister giraffe stay on her nightstand with her headlamp.
It's actually quite cute. She's a huge robot fan and for as long as I can remember she calls the lego people robots.
